So my dentist has been very concerned about my gum loss and bleeding gums. I was brushing twice daily, flossing, using a mouth rinse, still had bleeding. Tried antibiotics under gums, still bleeding and tissue loss. Baffled.
The wife recently bought us both Equate brand electric toothbrushes to replace our regular old manual brushes. I began using it and using much less pressure to brush, since the brush slowed down if too much pressure was applied.
So I go to the dentist for a 1 month check, since the bleeding was sooooo bad on my last visit. Bleeding is gone. Dentist amazed. Only thing that changed was the brush and the pressure.
Turns out that I have been hurting myself by brushing too hard trying to cure my bleeding gums. I was the problem. DOH!
